The effect of peroxidative stress on tissue was studied by exposure of red blood cells (RBC) from patients with abetalipoproteinemia to minute amounts of H(2)O(2)in vitro. Red blood cells from untreated patients showed a marked sensitivity to H(2)O(2), as evidenced by hemolysis and lipid peroxidation (peroxidative hemolysis). The appearance of lipid(More)
A mioderate reduction in the oxygen content of inspired air elicits an increase in the pulmonary arterial pressure in animals and man (1-5). It has been suggested that the catecholamines may be involved in this pressor response (6, 7). However, it is uncertain if this hypothesis applies to the effects of tolerable levels of hypoxia in man, since the(More)

Osteosynthesis fails however is a small number of patients who require re-operation for implantation of a total hip prosthesis. This situation occurs in particular when the material has penetrated the acetabulum and in elderly subjects. Although this type of(More)
